1 Claim. (Cl. 177-329)
This invention relates to improvements in sig
nal lights for automobiles and more particularly
to a lamp arranged at the front end of the
vehicle, preferably attached to the radiator shield

The lamp is intended primarily to give warning
The driver of the. Vehicle is relieved of the
matter of attention to the signal as it is auto
to trañic of the intention of the driver, particu
larli1 at a crossing or right of way intersection, as
to whether ‘ne will stop his vehicle or continue in
his course. The lamp is adapted to be operated
simultaneously with the vehicle service brake
and if it is the intention of the driver to stop his
car the light will display a “Go” signal to the on
15 coming and transverse traffic and to pedestrians,
whereas the absence of this signal will denote
the intention of the driver to proceed.
The ordinary “stop” light at the rear of a
vehicle denotes the intention of the driver to all
20 traffic at his rear but it conveys no notice of his
intention to on-coming tran-lc or to trafñc to the
right or left, nor to pedestrians who may intend
to cross in front of the vehicle. It is the purpose
of this signal to remedy this condition and to

the driver intends to stop, thus permitting traffic

More specifically the invention consists in the
combination and arrangement of parts to be>

claim and illustrated in the accompanying

for patent and in which

reference numeral I denotes the casing, prefer
ably wedge-shaped, the narrow end being the 10
front, the sides of the casing being provided with
the lenses 2 which are visible from the front of
the casing and from both sides thereof, each lens
having the word “Go” displayed thereupon and
the housing being provided with the usual lamp 3 15
energized from the battery 4 by the movement of
the service brake pedal 5 downwardly. A wire
6 connects the battery 4 to a conductor plate l
secured to the riser or inclined end of the. floor
board 8 adjacent to the brake pedal perforation 9. 20
A second conductor plate I0 arranged upon the
riser portion of the floor board upon the remote
side of the perforation 9 with relation to the
plate 'I is connected by the Wire Il to the lamp 3.
A longitudinally slotted Contact link I2 receives
a pin I3 through its slotted portion whereby it
is movab-ly connected to the shank of the brake
pedal, said link being pivotally connected to the
plate -I for contact with the plate I0 in the “on”
position of the brake pedal, this position being
denoted in dotted lines in Fig. 5 so that a circuit
is completed from the battery to the lamp
through the wire E, plate l, link I2, plate I!) and
wire I I to the lamp to energize the same.
A supporting bracket for the lamp casing in
cludes the angle pieces I3’ secured to the rear
end of the lamp casing and connected together
and adjustably connected to the inner ends of

screws being elongated or quite narrow. The
width of the heads of the screws is such that
they may be passed between the vertical bars I9 45

While the foregoing is a preferred form of my
invention it is to be understood that the same is
capable of certain modifications and reñnements
such as logically fall within the scope of the
appended claim, all of which are reserved.
What is claimed isz
The combination with the vertical bars of the
radiator shield of an automobile, of a Wedge
shaped casing, lenses arranged in the sides of
1U said casing and provided with indicia, and a
bracket for adjustably securing said casing to
the vehicle, said bracket including angle pieces
secured to the rear end of said casing and con
nected together, Y-shaped links adjustably con~
nected to said angle pieces, said links being
formed with elongated slots in one end, screws
having elongated heads for passage through said
slots and between the shield bars, and Wing' nuts
for said screws.
